The 24 year old persisted at the front coming second to eventual race winner Hichem Chaabane of Algeria to claim his third podium finish since the start of the Grand Tour d’Algerie which commenced on March 6. Hadi won the Grand Prix de Ville d’Oran a fortnight ago.
Hadi finished second in the mountain classification behind Chaabane and is 15th on the general classification while teammate Bonaventure Uwizeyimana is the highest ranked Rwandan rider in seventh position. Uwizeyimana was also second in the U-23 category after amassing 12:03:25 from the four stages, 3:07 behind winner Abderrahmane Bechlagheme of Algeria.
